(Bowman Gray Stadium, Winston-Salem, NC) This week was a series of long, hot nights in the garage for Tim Brown of Tobaccoville and his crew – but it paid off. Brown returned from a wreck last week to grab the checkered on Saturday night in the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series.
            One week earlier on July 23rd, Brown was forced to pit and end his night early after a collision with Jason Myers of Walnut Cove. He returned on Saturday to turn the fastest lap in qualifying sessions and claim the victory.
            “We got it tore up pretty good last week - didn’t get much sleep this week. So to come over here with that car after being badly torn up, to sit on the pole and win – it’s a relief,” said Brown. “Our car’s back from last week’s big wreck, and it’s as good as it was if not better.”

            Brown held off all challengers, fending off John Smith of Mount Airy as well as the brothers of Jason Myers and Burt Myers of Walnut Cove. When asked if he was ever worried, Brown smiled and shook his head. “Our car was really good. It was really really good,” said Brown.
            Burt Myers finished in second, with John Smith taking third.
            The “Madhouse Scramble” sent Jonathan Brown of Winston-Salem to the pole for the start of the second 50-lapper. Dean Ward of Winston-Salem tried repeatedly to move past Brown from the outside to grab the lead away, but he was unsuccessful.
            Around the halfway point, Jason Myers was able to overtake Ward to claim second. Myers seemed to be quicker than Brown and was on his bumper for lap after lap. But despite Myers’s efforts, outside row challenges were ineffective and repeated taps to the bumper were fought off by Brown.
            With just a few laps to go, Myers turned on the heat and gave increasingly stout bumps to Brown. On lap 47, Myers finally nudged Brown out of the groove and took over the lead. Matters worsened quickly for Jonathan Brown as he collided with Dean Ward and slammed the guard rail after trying to maneuver his way back into second.

            “A couple times I could get my nose right there but I wasn’t going to overdrive the car to knock him out,” said Myers. “I could bump him in the center and bump him off – my car was a lot better than his. But I got around him the best way I could without wrecking him. I finally got him out wide enough that I got under him, and we raced side by side for a minute - and then I don’t know how he wrecked.”
            “If he thinks I did him dirty, he could watch the video and see I did it as clean as I could without just plowing right through him,” said Myers. “I knocked him around, but I let him straighten it up every time. I mean. I can’t just let somebody win over here because they were in front of me.”
            Myers went on to take his third win of the season. Joseph Brown of Winston-Salem finished on his bumper in second, with Ronnie Clifton of Walkertown coming in third.
            In the Yates Grading & Paving Sportsman Series, Taylor Branch of Lewisville won the first 20-lapper. Dylan Ward of Winston-Salem slipped past Zack Ore of Winston-Salem to take the win in the second race.
            Doug Wall of Pfafftown fought hard to defend his lead against Brian Wall of Lexington in the Q104.1 New Country Street Stock Series. Doug Wall went on to win.
            And in the McDowell Heating & Air Stadium Stock Series, Wesley Thompson of Advance and Chris Allison of Mocksville each won a 15-lapper.
